Prima poza facuta astazi de la km 4 spre centura.Se vede terenul nivelat pe linga terasament.


Doua fotografii de la acelasi km 4 spre Popasului.Se vad santurile facute pentru a impiedica mersul camioanelor pe zona proaspat nivelata si compactata.Zona asta s-a compactat temeinic.Intai treceau 2 masini stropitoare dupa care 2 compactoare.S-au plimbat asa zile intregi.Poate ne explica cineva de specialitate procedura.



Terasamentul de pietris l-am fotografiat mai de aproape.Pe terasamentul asta carau camioanele si astazi pietris de la organizarea de santier spre capatul dinspre Popasului.


Va mai pun doua poze ceva mai vechi sa vedeti ce s-a pus sub pietris



La ora 18 nu mai era nici o activitate la capatul dinspre Popasului.Mai departe pe cimp se lucra la ceva, in urma camioanelor ridicandu-se nori de praf.
Pe toata zona intre CB si Popasului peste pitris pina acum nu am vazut sa se toarne nimic altceva.
Cel mai imbucurator este ca se lucreaza!

Bucharest Ring overpass completed:

According to statements today from the Romanian Transportation Ministry, most funds for 2014-2020 EU financing cycle will be put into Sibiu-Piteti motorway (~ EUR 3 billion cost), and it's planned to complete it by 2020. So that other routes will probably get less attention/less EU financing.

Plans to cut motorway through Bucharest stir outcry
By Jonas Mercier (AFP) – 8 hours ago

BUCHAREST — At a time when cities across the world seek ways to reduce traffic, the mayor of Romania 's capital Bucharest has launched an ambitious project to build a new motorway in the city, despite widespread protests.

At a cost of 1.5 billion euros ($1.9 billion), the six-lane freeway will be 13 kilometres (eight miles) long and cut through several residential districts.

Notably jacking up the cost is a plan to have it cross under one of Bucharest 's largest parks, Herastrau.

"This means one kilometre will cost more than 100 million euros, whereas the European average is around five million," said Nicusor Dan, president of the Save Bucharest association.

Mayor Sorin Oprescu has made the project the top priority of his second four-year term which ends in 2016.

"The funds will not come from our budget," he pledged after the city council approved the draft plans. "The motorway will be built under a public-private partnership."

Chinese, US, Russian and South Korean investors were interested in the deal, Oprescu said.

Last year the mayor even signed a memorandum to this effect with the Shanghai Construction Group.

If urban motorways remain popular in Asia 's big cities, in western Europe the priority is increasingly to curb traffic.

"In the short run, a new motorway does tend to relieve traffic congestion, but after a while it only attracts more cars," Gruia Badescu, a town planning expert and doctoral student at Cambridge , told AFP.

After experiencing similar problems, several French cities such as Marseille and Grenoble decided to bulldoze bridges crossing built-up areas.

Back in the 1960s, municipal authorities in Paris planned to build a network of urban motorways but gave up the idea before any harm was done to the City of Lights .

Now, the coalition of French Socialists and Greens which has the majority in the city council promises to turn a road running along the Seine through the heart of Paris into a riverside promenade in 2013.

"Western Europe is increasingly calling into question not only the omnipresence of cars but also the extensive development of cities," Jean Laterrasse, head of the city transport lab of Paris Est university, told AFP.

Instead, " Bucharest is facing two major problems -- on the one hand the lack of town planning administrative culture and on the other the absence of dialogue between authorities and the community," said Gabriel Pascariu, a professor at Bucharest 's Ion Mincu architecture university.

"Recent studies have shown that traffic is not the topmost problem to Bucharesters," he added.

A Balkan town that turned into a metropolis under the communist regime has some two million inhabitants and is an economic hub of southeastern Europe .

Bucharest , disfigured when the late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu razed three-quarters of its historical centre to build a gigantic palace, has in recent years fallen prey to real estate predators and is suffocated by traffic.

In the middle of the last decade, when Romania was enjoying an unprecedented economic boom, more than 1,000 vehicles were registered daily in Bucharest .

The number of cars has doubled in the past 10 years and now tops one million.

"It's obvious that solutions that worked in the 1970s cannot solve traffic jams today," said Alain Bourdin, a town planning professor at Paris Est university.

"But we have to be realistic: authorities cannot limit traffic unless they provide a very dense public transportation network," he added.

In Bucharest , while the mayor has decided to make life easier for drivers, associations fighting to preserve the city's architectural heritage are siding with pedestrians and bicyclists.

The usual bla bla excuse not to invest in urban accessibility.

French experts criticize suspended motorway planned by Oprescu

A group of French experts of the Paris Est university believe that the suspended motorway planned by Bucharest mayor Sorin Oprescu will be ineffective and might draw even more cars, AFP informs, quoted by ziare.com.

"The solutions that worked in the ‘70s obviously cannot solve the traffic problems of today,” says Alain Bourdin, urbanism professor, quoted by AFP. "Authorities cannot curb traffic until they provide a real alternative, which is a well-conceived public transport,” he added

"On short term, a motorway might calm the traffic congestion, but in the long run it will attract even more cars,” believes Gruia Bădescu, an urban planning expert.

The 6-lane motorways will be 13 km long, will cross several districts of Bucharest and will cost 1.5 billion euros, France 24 reports.

Mayor Oprescu declared the project a priority and wants to complete it by 2016, through a public-private partnership with investors possibly from China, USA, Russia and Korea.

Those anti-car people have not a single example of a large city with excellent public transport and without motorways that does not suffer from serious congestion. Large cities need good infrastructure. That includes roads.

I couldn't agree more, and improving Bucharest's road network should be encouraged not put down, otherwise we could always send buldozers to the Francilienne just to even things out a little

Especially the public transport meccas like Japanese cities, Singapore or Hong Kong have a large number of urban expressways. Bucharest has none for through traffic and none for urban traffic.

The city is chaos from a traffic engineering point of view. Incredible lack of public and private parking, no expressways or motorways, all signalized intersections, just an occasional short tunnel here and there. Just fire up Google Street View and view a random intersection.

LeClerk is against the project because the mayor is not from his favorite party.

To be fair, the plan is not bad, but there are better uses for the money. I'd use the money to build the motorway ring (ACB) outside the city first.

There! We perfectly agree! Does it mean you are also not a supporter of the mayor's favorite party(who formally is an independent BTW)?
